I love Valentine's Day. Being the only male in the house, I get more hugs and kisses on this day from my girls than any other time of the year. We exchange cards and gifts and chocolates. Yep- everything from Hershey kisses to Vosges haut-chocolat.
In a household with diabetes a bon bon windfall may seem weird, but it shouldn't be. The general misunderstanding between type 1 and type 2 results in a judgmental "evil eye" from some non-diabetics when we give out the occasional treat to our diabetic daughter. We take it as an opportunity to teach others that candy does not cause type 1 diabetes. I figure if we do it enough, someday everyone will understand what type 1 is all about it.
That would be really sweet.
